Rockefeller Foundation Faces $1 Billion Lawsuit For Infecting Hundreds With Syphilis

By

January 13, 2019

Science, World News




A federal judge in Baltimore, Maryland made the decision to move forward in a $1 billion lawsuit against Johns Hopkins University, Bristol-Myers Squibb and the Rockefeller Foundation for the role in a 1940s U.S. Government experiment. The decision highlights the darker side to many of our modern medications.

The decision is for the 444 victims and their families who are suing those involved in an experiment in Guatemala that was kept hidden until 2010. The experiment was conducted to better understand the treatment and prevention of STDs, specifically focused on the effectiveness of the then-new drug penicillin. When the test was uncovered by a professor at Wellesley College in Massachusetts, President Barack Obama called the Guatemalan president personally to offer a sincere apology.

The lawsuit was first filed and dismissed last year, however, following the recommendation of U.S. District Judge Marvin J. Garbis, the victims’ attorneys refiled. In order to do so, they were required to outline the events of the experiment including how and when the victims were experimented on, as well as the way in which it impacted their spouses, children, and grandchildren.

“We feel profound sympathy for the individuals and families impacted, and reiterate that this 1940’s study in Guatemala was funded and conducted by the U.S. Government, not by Johns Hopkins,” stated Hopkins spokeswoman Kim Hoppe in a statement from the University. “We will continue to vigorously defend the lawsuit.”

The lawsuit alleges that the experiment not only involved employees and board members from the organizations, but also a U.S. surgeon general, however, it does not target the government in any way. As Ryan Perlin, of Bekman, Marder and Adkins, the Baltimore-based firm currently representing the victims explained, “The U.S. government has apologized to Guatemala, but the private institutions have not and have fought this every step of the way.”

He went on to add, “Our goal is to learn as much as we can about what happened in Guatemala. We’re only just getting to the place where we can start doing that.”

The stories shared in the lawsuit are disturbing at best, dividing the victims into six different categories: people who were infected as part of the experimentation, the estates of these original victims, spouses, first-generation descendants, subsequent generate descendants and other relatives of those who died as a result of the diseases contracted from the studies. At least one story from each category was shared in the complaint, showing just how vast the impact of this experiment currently reaches.

The diseases weren’t restricted to just those initially infected. Instead, they infected spouses and children unknowingly, starting a ripple effect in the area. The study even suggests that some were unaware that they were part of the experiment until President Barack Obama’s public apology.

The experiment is incredibly similar to the well-known Syphilis Study at Tuskegee in which 600 black men were experimented upon. Many claim that many didn’t receive the proper treatment to cure the illness, leaving them to suffer.

Are the Ten Plagues Reappearing Today?

“He sent signs and portents against Egypt, against Pharaoh and all his servants;”Psalms 135:9 (The Israel Bible™)

A recent wave of four Biblical plagues has many wondering if the remaining six are about to strike since, according to Jewish tradition, all of the plagues that struck Egypt will reappear before the final redemption.

First Plague: Water to Blood

Moses and Aaron did as the Lord commanded. In the sight of Pharaoh and in the sight of his servants he lifted up the staff and struck the water in the Nile, and all the water in the Nile turned into blood. (Exodus 7:20)

More than any of the plagues that followed, the sight of crimson water has become deeply embedded in the collective unconscious and is readily associated with the Exodus. Although Pharoah’s necromancers were able to duplicate Aaron’s feat, the sight of the Nile-God turning to blood gave the Egyptians a taste of things to come.

Earlier this month, several cases of rivers turning blood-red were reported in different spots around the world, kicking off the New Year with Exodus aspirations.


Plague of Blood Red Rivers Suddenly Appears in Multiple Locations

Seventh Plague: Hail

Hashem said to Moshe, “Hold out your arm toward the sky that hail may fall on all the land of Egypt, upon man and beast and all the grasses of the field in the land of Egypt.” Exodus 9:22

Last year ended with hail showing up in unexpected locations. Saudi Arabia was hit by baseball-sized ice balls, covering the sandy deserts. A short but intense hailstorm is Swaziland, South Africa killed a herd of cows. But even more shocking was the Biblical mixture of fire and ice that struck in Australia as ice storms were accompanied by lightning that set of bush fires.

Eighth Plague: Locusts

They covered the face of the whole land, so that the land was darkened, and they ate all the plants in the land and all the fruit of the trees that the hail had left. Not a green thing remained, neither tree nor plant of the field, through all the land of Egypt. (Exodus 10:15)


Just last week Saudi Arabia suffered a massive infestation of bugs, most notably locusts. In a case of divine irony, the bugs arrived in time for the weekly Torah reading that described their role in the Exodus of the Jews from Egypt. Though many natural causes were blamed for the insects’ appearance, images of the floor of the Great Mosque in Mecca covered in dead locusts evoked Biblical connotations.

Ninth Plague: Darkness

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, a darkness to be felt. (Exodus 10:21)

The total solar eclipse that transversed the continental U.S. in August 2017 ushered in one of the most catastrophic hurricane seasons in the nation’s history. The country will not see another total solar eclipse until April 2024 but on January 21, a lunar eclipse with grave spiritual significance will pass over the country.

Tenth Plague: Death of the Firstborn

At midnight the Lord struck down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of the livestock. (Exodus 12:29)

It may be that the most dreaded Tenth Plague is reappearing, or at least one disturbing aspect of it.In a recent article concerning the Messianic implications of do-it-yourself DNA testing, it was revealed that 20-30 percent of paternity tests reveal that the man doing the test is not the father of the child they are testing.

Rabbi Berger saw this an aspect of the redemption that was witnessed in the Exodus from Egypt. He noted that this technology-aided revelation of widespread infidelity closely resembles what was seen in Egypt just prior to the Exodus of the Hebrews. He noted that according to Jewish tradition, all of the plagues of Egypt would be revisited before the Messiah.

“During the Plague of the Death of the Firstborn, there were households with one father and one mother in which several, or all of the children would die,” Rabbi Berger explained. “That was because they were all firstborn…to different fathers.”

Super Blood Wolf Moon: Your essential guide to rare lunar event


Stargazers are in for an epic astronomical treat this weekend, when three cosmic elements merge to create a ‘super blood wolf moon’, something that’s only going to happen three times this century.

Here’s RT’s guide to the rare lunar event.

Why all these names

A ‘wolf moon’ is the name given for a full moon that happens in January, and derives from early Native American tribes noting when wolves would allegedly howl at the moon, according to the Farmer's Almanac. A total lunar eclipse is called a ‘blood moon’, and gets its name from the tint it gets when the Earth and moon briefly line up, casting a shadow over the lunar surface.

It’s considered a ‘supermoon’ because the moon will reach its closest orbital point to Earth, making it appear 10 to 15 percent bigger than usual.

Why it’s worth seeing

In a nutshell, this is a rare enough occurence to be worth you standing outside on a blisteringly cold January night, staring up at the sky. While Earthlings can catch scores of supermoons and blood moons in their lifetime, a combination of the two taking place together in January only happens three times this century.

Also, this will be the last total lunar eclipse until May 2021, so miss this and you’ll be waiting over two years for the next one.


A Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse is coming to a theatre near you. On Sunday, January 20th into Monday the 21st, we’ll have a total lunar eclipse of a super blood moon (reddish tint, 14% bigger, 30% brighter). It will also be a full moon Jan 21, known as the Wolf moon.



When to look up

The key timeframe is Sunday evening (January 20) or early Monday morning, depending on where you live in the world. The event starts at 02:36 UTC, however the part you don’t want to miss (totality) starts at 04:41 UTC and will last for about an hour. Unlike solar eclipses, you don’t need eye protection to witness this one, and if the sky above is clear, stargazers should be able to look on from cities and villages alike.

Where to watch

People in North and South America should have a particularly spectacular view of the celestial proceedings, but they will also be visible from Greenland, Iceland, parts of western Europe and parts of Western Africa. Meanwhile, eastern Europe, eastern Africa and a lucky few on the fringe of east Asia will be able to see a partial lunar eclipse.

The vast majority of Asia, and all of Australia, will not be able to see the eclipse this time, according to NASA.

If you can't catch a glimpse of the natural phenomenon in person, you can watch via online livestreams, includingthis one from the TimeAndDate.

Fire

At least 73 people killed, dozens injured in Mexico gasoline pipeline explosion - UPDATE

A pipeline explosion north of Mexico City has killed at least 21 and injured more than 70 people who had been gathered around the ruptured Pemex line collecting free fuel. Another blast came minutes later near San Juan del Rio.

The pipeline had been spewing fuel for several hours near Pemex's Tula refinery, and hundreds of people had reportedly gathered round with plastic containers and even vehicles to grab whatever fuel they could carry - rendering the eventual explosion that much more deadly. Videos posted on social media, apparently from the scene, show flames shooting dozens of meters upwards as people scurry around screaming.

Pemex said in a statement that the fire was because of illegal siphoning at the Tuxpan-Tula pipeline in Tlahuelilpan.

The site has been secured by the Mexican Army, according to Hidalgo state Governor Omar Fayad. President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has made cracking down on fuel thieves a priority, stating that the siphoning cost the government over US$3 billion in 2018.


Just minutes after the explosion, another Pemex pipeline exploded in Paso de Mata, near San Juan del Río, sending yellow fireballs into the air. No one was reported injured in that blast.

Comment: Gas-related explosions and other fires from around the world in recent times include:Update: On 20th Jan. CNN reports:
At least 73 people were killed in central Mexico after a ruptured gasoline pipeline exploded Friday evening, the governor of the State of Hidalgo, Omar Fayad, said Saturday in a news conference in Mexico City.

At least 74 people were injured, with seven of those under the age of 18 and one was 12 years old, Fayad said. He said some of the minors will be transferred to Shriners Hospital for Children in Galveston, Texas.

Alejandro Gertz Manero, general prosecutor of Mexico, said Saturday night that the investigation has just started but that a "preliminary belief" is that static electricity from the clothing of people around the pipeline may have caused the blast.

He noted a large number of people were around the pipeline, some of whom were wearing clothes made with synthetic fibers that could "generate electric reactions.

"He said no arrests have been made and that witnesses will be interviewed Sunday.The fire resulting from the pipeline explosion has been extinguished, Mexican Secretary of Public Security Alfonso Durazo said on Twitter, and rescue teams have begun to recover bodies.




Residents in the immediate vicinity of the pipeline, which runs from the cities of Tuxpan to Tula, have been evacuated, State oil company Pemex said.

Pemex said an investigation into the cause of the blast was underway. The company initially had said the explosion was caused by illegal taps in the pipeline. The governor of the State of Hidalgo, Omar Fayad, called on the community not to steal gasoline.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who visited Tlahuelilpan and met with officials at a command center, saidpipelines will be monitored to avoid fuel theft.

"To guarantee that there are no fuel shortages, it has been fundamental the participation of the armed forces, the military, marines and federal police," he said. "If necessary, we will re-enforce the surveillance strategy. Another method will be the increase of fuel transportation capacity."

He said his administration is working to acquire and buy fuel tanks to increase fuel by 25%.

The explosion comes as gas stations in several Mexican states and the country's capital have been running dry for nearly two weeks.The López Obrador administration closed key pipelines in an effort to crack down on fuel theft, which the Mexican leader said cost the country an estimated $3 billion last year.

Drivers in Mexico have grown desperate. Family members take turns waiting in long lines for gas. Some comb social media for clues about which stations are open. Others have simply decided to leave their cars at home.

Pemex said a new gas distribution system will have long-term benefits that outweigh any short-term cost. Pemex said the explosion would not affect gasoline distribution in Mexico City. Authorities have blamed fuel theft for previous explosions in Mexico. In 2010, a pipeline blew up in the state of Puebla, leaving 28 people dead and scores injured.
The horrifying aftermath of the pipeline blast in Mexico has been captured in a disturbing video that shows terrified people, engulfed by flames, fleeing for their lives. The footage shows crowds of panicked people running to escape the massive wall of fire, many of whom are covered in flames.
